Oh wow, that's strong. Didn't know they were playing Kadri on the wing now.
Yeah they converted to the wing last year I think more for a less defensive role right now. But yeah it's a fun line to see, especially since they're all going to be with the big club soon. It would be great to have them all on a line when they get their shot. Lot's of complimentary skill there.
One thing Joe has to learn is, staying aware at the blueline for D looking for a big hit. Last year he was knocked out for a few games by Stellick on a late hit because he relaxed after passing the puck and last night he was lucky he was ok from a similar hit. Hope he has learned that lesson if he wants a long concussed free career.
When looking at Colborne scoring pace now, itís obvious the wrist issues were what caused the sudden disappearance of Colborne, but also his sudden re-emergence Due to the small sample size of a healthy Colborne itís hard to judge exactly the type of player Colborne is. If when healthy, he truely is a point per game AHL centre, who is still learning to use his size and only a couple months over 23 years of age, then their is a lot of reason for Leaf fans to have optimism about Colbornes future in Toronto. Over the past season many high end AHL prospects have made the jump to the NHL, and in general the jump seems to be made when a prospect has been able to put up a point per game in the minorís. When comparing Colborne to other young forwards (all born in í89 or later) who made the jump from the AHL to the NHL this season, Colborne does not look out of place.
If Colborne continues to play well and makes Toronto next season and Kadri keeps up his great play next season then Toronto could have 1 of the better 1-2 young centre punches in the league for the next few years.
